New Celtic trio Mason-Raney-Weed announces an upcoming series of West Coast shows. Guitarist Stuart Mason, Celtic singer Colleen Raney, and fiddler John Weed will present a lively selection of pure-drop tunes and songs from Ireland and Scotland. Their repertoire is a perfect balance of uplifting dance tunes and heart-tugging ballads.
John and Stuart are members of Molly’s Revenge, a dynamic, acoustic Celtic band known for its unique and infectious enthusiasm. Molly’s Revenge has performed at many of the top folk festivals and performing arts events in the USA, and prestigious events in Australia, Scotland, and China. They have appeared on stage with John Doyle, Liz Carroll, Aaron Jones, and other top Celtic artists. “There is an engaging freshness and yet an impressive maturity in their playing.” –Mick Moloney, National Heritage Award recipient.
Among the best Celtic singers of her generation, Colleen Raney is inspired by the Irish and Scottish songs and tunes that she grew up with in the rich Irish community in Seattle, Washington. Through her gorgeous voice and deft arrangements, Colleen manages to credit her background and stake claim as a serious presence in contemporary Celtic music. “Singing with a deep love for the tradition, and for the dark poetry of Celtic song, Colleen has been drawing new life from the old ballads and renewing our love for Celtic music.” –Devon Leger, Hearth Music, Seattle.
